public $bootstrap : string[]

List of module IDs that should be run during the application bootstrapping process. Each module may be specified with a module ID as specified via [[modules]].

During the bootstrapping process, each module will be instantiated. If the module class implements the bootstrap() method, this method will be also be called.

public $modules : array<string,string|array<string,mixed>|callable|\Piko\Module>

List of modules configurations. Should be either :

  'moduleId' => 'moduleClassName'

Or :

  'moduleId' => [
    'class' => 'moduleClassName',
    'layoutPath' => '/some/path'
    // ...

see \Piko\ModuleTo have more informations on module attributes


public __construct(): void

public  __construct(array&lt;string,string|array&lt;string,mixed&gt;&gt;  $config = []): void



$config (default: []): The application configuration.

public getModule(): \Piko\Module

public  getModule(string  $moduleId): \Piko\Module

Get a module instance


$moduleId : The module identifier

throws \RuntimeException


\Piko\Module instance

public parseRoute(): (string|null)[]

public static  parseRoute(string  $route): (string|null)[]

Parse a route and return an array containing the module’s id, the controller’s id and the action’s id.


$route : The route to parse. The route format is one of the following :




public run(): void

public  run(\Psr\Http\Message\ServerRequestInterface  $request = null, bool  $emitHeaders = true): void

Run the application.


$request (default: null):

$emitHeaders (default: true): Controls whether headers will be emmited (header() function called)
